Quote from the museum:
At the end of 2007, the Kröller-Müller Museum received a unique work of art: the Kubus Project by composer Ton Bruynèl (1934-1998) and sculptor Carel Visser (1928). The work, an environment in which music and sculpture form an inseparable unity and wherein the visitor is also invited to partake, came into being in Ton Bruynèl’s studio between 1969 and 1971. It was first set up in 1971 at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam within the context of experimental music and the visual arts and was considered a special experience by both young and old. In 1976, it was exhibited in a slightly altered set-up at the Centraal Museum Utrecht. After that, it disappeared from view.
Now in 2008, exactly 10 years after Bruynèl’s death and in Visser’s 80th year, it has turned up again. For many years, friends of Bruynèls kept the work in and around their house, first in the Netherlands and later in France, i.e. the two impressive sound machines and the accompanying tapes with Bruynèl’s composition and Visser’s steel cubes.
